I wanted to re-imagine Janet Jackson tunes without contorting the essence of what makes her songs so wonderful. So, this was my first effort at doing that, in conjunction with SoulBounce.com's #31DaysOfJanet tribute in August 2015. I got up with my brother Zo! on an arrangement I had already done, and Zo! completely brought the arrangement to life with his nimble production skills and musicianship. Maybe I'll do a whole album of this... we shall see.
